BearCity: The Novel
Novelization by Lawrence Ferber
Based upon the screenplay
by Doug Langway & Lawrence Ferber
The Bear Bones Books imprint of indy publisher Lethe Press proudly presents its eighteenth title, BearCity: The Novel, based on Doug Langway’s eponymous smash hit feature-length comedy film.
BearCity follows the funny, sexy, and often dramatic adventures of a tight-knit pack of bears, cubs, and friends in New York City as they gear up for a big party weekend.
A hirsute Sex and the City set in the City’s gay/bi men’s “Bear” scene, the BearCity story brings together these men, their friends, tricks, and lovers, and a cast of colorful, hirsute characters. They experience comical mishaps, lusty and romantic encounters, and a staggering variety of male body types.
Using satire and humor, BearCity, the novel explores these men’s self-image issues, as well as poking fun at aspects of urban gay and bisexual male lifestyles, all while celebrating the worldwide community of homomasculine men who call themselves Bears.
BearCity also features 16 outstanding b/w photo images chosen by the author and director directly from the hi-res digital film, as well as many behind-the-scenes photos taken by the author.
